A very pregnant Sweets was rescued from the county shelter and delivered five precious babies upon her arrival to Alaqua Animal Refuge in Freeport.

Now that all of her babies have been adopted, this beautiful two-year-old Lab/Hound mix is ready to find a forever home of her very own. If her mothering skills are any indication, then she’ll be a loyal, loving and gentle dog.

If you think that Sweets is truly the perfect match for you, then you must come meet her at Alaqua.

To adopt Sweets or any other animal at Alaqua, visit alaquaanimalrefuge.com or call 850-880-6399.
